I lied, I'm not done...

Perhaps -

But that does not do anything to resolve the incontrovertible fact that THERE IS NO MORE OIL.

Our society - the World - has done everything on the back of fossil fuel energy sources. For years the world enjoyed an excess of energy resources. That excess became one of two things - either prosperity or growth. Prosperity results when one would maintain their consumption levels, thus fixing their resource requirement, and converting excess resource into "stuff". Growth results from conversion of excess resources to a new higher level of consumption. Think of it this way - a family of four, Mom Dad, 2 kids, living on 50K a year. Mom or Dad gets a raise allowing one of two things, either a higher standard of living (prosperity) or another kid (growth). But not both.

The same with our fossil fuel energy consumption. The resources are fixed - there is no more. Every country in the world has based their model on unlimited resources for both growth AND prosperity. You can't have both.

And once the "unlimited" resource is gone, you can't have either.

We are staring at an oncoming cataclysmic event and we don't even know enough to do anything about it except run out and buy a freakin' Prius.

I'll say this - it is going to happen in my lifetime and I am thrilled to be witness to it's unfolding.

True, but there is an even more precious resourse that will cause even greater global strife than the oil supply running out and that is the potable water supply.

Do you think RP running again in 2012? I know his kid is running in 2010. I think a lot of disgruntled people are left from the last election to increased support this time around. Now that his predictions about the economy came true and people start to realize the other "republicans" and the democrats are all full of crap.

I admit, I chuckled at him during the debates, but I was the fool in retrospect.

Noise -

I feel like such a dumb ass for doing the same. Imagine me, someone who took an Oath to support and defend the Constitution, ridiculing someone calling for a return to a Constitutional government?

With all seriousness and humility,

Shame on me.

If he runs, Ron Paul has my vote in '12.

Hopefully we are not the only ones... maybe it ain't too late.

Barnes and noble had the constitution, articles of confed and dec of ind. combined in a hardbound on discount rack for $4.98 along with Common Sense by thomas paine for $5.98...

Best $11 I ever spent. Reading them now.

The amazing thing is that they are not long, and really easy to read.

Everyone should.

I have a little paperback version and it is slim and trim; along with my Strunk and White, two very important small books...

I'll stick with my bicycle & sailboat when the oil is all gone. Not quite sure how exactly I'll heat the old house though. It is a little disconcerting.

Thanks for putting in your two pence earlier when cyrano de bergerac and Mr 72-74 were giving me lip.

I was going to refer to queen's bicycle but that sounds like a sex toy and is farther away from the dead than the easy listening soothing sounds of Christopher cross.
